I am a very bad blogger. I just realized this morning that my last post was on 5/1.
As a way of saying 'thank you' for sticking with me despite my delinquent ways, and in celebration of Memorial Day Weekend (the start of the summer season here in the US), I've decided to have a contest.
The photo above shows my latest design, Lavalette. (See it on Ravelry for more details.) I sent it out for test knitting this morning. I expect the pattern to be ready in 2-3 weeks. What does this shawl have to do with the contest? I've got an extra skein of the yarn, Jade Sapphire Cashmere Silk. If you haven't felt this yarn you are missing out. The stuff is heavenly!
The winner of the contest will receive the skein of yarn (enough to knit the shawl as seen in the photos) as well as the pattern once it is complete.
Just leave a comment on this post, telling me about your favorite summer vacation. I'll use a random number generator to pick a winner.
You have until Saturday, June 6th. I'll announce the winner the following week.
PS. Be sure to check back here on Tuesday (5/26). I'll be releasing the pattern for the "Jeanne" shawl that day.
